MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

The second edition of this unique text for clinical neurology provides an expanded picture on the variation of neurological disease across the world. As the field of neurology develops there is a need for clinicians to keep abreast of global trends and patterns. Most texts consider only Western populations and miss many of the variations that are present in modern, mixed heritage communities and as such, the wrong models of causation can be applied, leading to insufficient diagnosis and ineffective management. Equally, the increase in international travel has made it more likely that patients present to physicians with diseases they have not yet seen, or with different manifestations of diseases they have seen.


This book is written by an extensive team of authors and section editors from across the world, familiar with, and expert in, neurologic diseases. The chapters address the etiology and pathogenesis of disease, and then discuss differences in genetic, environmental, and demographic factors, as well as therapeutic approaches from an evidence–based medicine approach. Coverage of management options describes both the gold′ standard that may be present in Western countries, and other more affordable, approaches for developing nations.


Across 21 sections and 179 chapters, the book provides essential content on the spectrum of neurological diseases and disorders emphasizing, where present, differences in diseases and their manifestations in different populations and locales. Varying approaches to differential diagnoses around the world and is also covered.



  • Comprehensive coverage of neurological diseases and disorders with a clinical approach to diagnosis, treatment and management

  • Truly international authorship distils expert knowledge from around the world

  • Succinct, bite–sized, templated chapters allow for rapid clinical referral

  • Further reading recommendations for each chapter guide readers requiring more depth of information

  • Endorsed by the World Federation of Neurology


This uniquely global approach to neurology provides an outstanding teaching tool and guide to clinical practice around the world for neurologists and neurology trainees.
